The System-8 hosts software versions of the Jupiter-8 and Juno-106.
Following the announcement of the TB-03, TR-09 and VP-03, Roland also debuted the System-8, an eight-voice polyphonic synthesiser. Like many of its new products, the System-8 is powered by a digital Analog Circuit Behaviour engine. Its three oscillators run through an option of six filter models and can host up to three of Roland's Plug-Out software synthesisers—the System-8 comes with Plug-Outs modelled on Roland's analogue Jupiter-8 and Juno-106 synthesisers. A 64-step TR-style sequencer is on-board, capable of capturing polyphonic note information and parameter changes, while Chord Memory allows chords to be played by a single key. CV and gate outputs facilitate communication with analogue hardware and Eurorack modules.
Roland also announced a 909-themed turntable and DJ mixer. The TT-99 turntable is a direct drive design with a built-in phono preamp and a wow and flutter spec of 0.15 % or less. The DJ-99 mixer is a two-channel, three-band model with dedicated DVS in and outputs.
